    les Maisons GAUDI

    by laulo Written Apr 17, 2003

    Certaines Maisons qu'a refait l'architecte Gaudi peuvent se visiter... Sans formidablement beau et aussi très ingénieux pour l'époque... A voir absolument la casa Batllo et la Pédrera....

    RQ : se renseigner à l'office du tourisme pour les horaires...

    A 2nd Gaudi House

    by Venturingnow Written Feb 25, 2003
    The 2nd house

    There is another house built by Gaudi in Barcelona, though it isn't known to many tourists, at least I didn't find any there. It's a long ways out of the normal track, and if you don't have a metro pass, I wouldn't advise even thinking about heading out there, it just isn't worth it, as the house was pretty bland.

    Visit all the Gaudí works

    Mosaic of some works of Gaud��

    If you're a fan of architecture, you can't miss all the works of Gaudí. They're impressive!.
    Depends of the time of the year, Barcelona has a lot to offer... for example, in june, don't miss the traditional festivity of "Saint Joan", or this year (2002) the 1st of June, when Barcelona celebrate the "year of gaudí", with a spectacular performance in the "Sagrada Familia" with lights, music, laser lights and fireworks (if somebody has the oportunitty to have been in barcelona to watch this live, will be agree with me that it was tremendous and beautiful!)...

    And, hte beaches are a good option too!... if you can, try to go to Sitges,(a place near Barcelona... 45 minutes by train or so..). Good warm water... but the worst thing is the weather in barcelona... hot and wet....

    And if the day is good.... try to make a picnic in the Parc Guell..... veeery pleasant!

    there's so to do in barcelona, just hang out and enjoy or you'll kill yourself!
    you can't help but be blown away by the whole gaudi thing and architecture in general - there are beautiful buildings and landscapes everywhere. all you have to do is live to suck it in.
    the locals in barcelona haven't yet gotten around to all there is to see there - gaudi's buildings, parc guell, the beach, gracia neighbourhood. just get there and you won't have to look for anything, barcelona just rolls out in front of you!

    WORKS BY GAUDI

    Parc G��ell, Barcelona

    Antoni Gaudí i Cornet was one of the leading architects of Catalan Modernisme. His works were a 'nationalistic searching for a romantical medieval past'. He created a lot of beautiful buildings. Recommendable to see are:
    - His masterpiece: La Sagrada Familia
    - Casa Mila (La Pedrera)
    - Casa Battlo
    - Parc Güell

    The Architecture of Gaudi

    by MozBrad Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The architect Antoni Gaudi lived in Barcelona from 1852 to 1926. He is famous for building some extremely impressive and fantastic creations in Barcelona. Especially worth seeing are Casa Mila 'La Pedrera', Sagrada Familia, and Casa Batllo. I was lucky enough to see the inside of Casa Batllo, as my company rented it for an evening party. It's incredible! Unfortunately we were dressed up and didn't find room to bring a camera, so I have no pictures! This prompted me to purchase a small (but expensive) digital camera that I can pocket so I'll never miss an opportunity again!

    Gaudi Works - he is just beyond his time and our time!!!

    Casa-Museu Gaudí Parc Güell
    One of only a few houses completed in the Parc Güell, this modest residence was actually designed by Gaudí's colleague Francesc Berenguer. Gaudí conceived the graceful pergola in the garden, and lived here from 1906 to 1926 - although in the years leading up to his untimely death he mostly slept in the workshop at the Sagrada Fam'lia. The simple interior, in tune with Gaudí's spartan religiosity, offers examples of the beautiful and outlandish furniture designed by him and by his disciples, such as Josep Maria Jujol. Also on show are memorabilia of Gaudí and his collaborators, and drawings for some of his wilder, unfinished projects.

    La Pedrera - at the Passeig de Gràcia
    (very near to all the designer shops) and just after Casa Bottla.
    You need sometime in hear to walk around. It is very well organised, and you can take your time to move around the sychronised self - tour - just follows the numbers, and you will end up at the roof - breath taking view.

    Sagrada Fam'lia - the Holy Family Church

    Metro Sagrada Fam'lia
    I think it is about 1 or 2 stops from La Pedrera.
    It is a bit dusty in their as works continues. Otherwise very shocking the works he has done, and the current continuing works. It looks like it would take possibly another 100 years to complete!!!

    by Kidproton Written Aug 25, 2002

    The Gaudi Buildings, including the Sacred Heart cathedral. You can do the entire Gaudi Circuit on foot, if you plan carefully (something I had to do because of a transportation strike). The picasso museum and the wax museum. The Aquarium. The Ramblas. Plaza de Catalunya. The zoo. The 'funicular'. The beach. The 'Barrio Gotico' and Chinatown. Heck, go to 'El Corte Ingles'. It's an attraction onto itself. There is so much to this city...

    Antoni Gaudí was undoubtedly a genius of the Catalan Architecture. He built several works of Art in Barcelona. The Casa Milà (or La Pedrera) is an example. Built in 1910 for the Milà Family now it is site of the Foundation of a popular Catalan bank (Caixa Catalunya). You can visit the first floor, devoted to interesting exhibitions, one of the apartments (furnished with elements from the beginning of the XXth century), the attic (including a very interesting permanent exhibition on the life and work of Gaudí) and the roof (with impressive views over the Passeig de Gràcia and Barcelona). From here you'll see also another great work by Gaudí: The Sagrada Família.

    Barcellona is the city of the great architect Antonio Gaudi whose buildings are modernist but clearly different from any others. The photo is of Casa Mila', popularly known as 'La Padrera' - (The Quarry)

    See as much of the Gaudi architecture as you can. The town is peppered by various examples of his buildings. You also shouldn't miss the still-under-construction-after-100-years Sagrada Familia cathedral (walk up into the spiers unless you have vertigo or are afraid of heights). You have to pay to get into Sagrada Familia, and there is a museum inside. The Parc Guell is amazing, too.
    Nobody in the world has ever done in architecture what Gaudi has done. Other Barcelonian architects of the same period (called Modernismo) are also interesting, but Gaudi is the king. Gaudi seems unaware of the concept of straight lines. The buildings are explosions of color and outlandish designs.

    Al Gaudi-buildings are very impressive, Miro-museum, Picasso museum, Dali museum, gothic area, Ramblas, etc., etc....
    All these museums are from unique qualities. Gaudi, Miro, Picasso, Dali are first class artist.

    And the Ramblas is great for just sit and watch
